Movie Premiere: Half Of A Yellow Sun

March 22, 2014

Based on the acclaimed novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie that chronicles an extended family’s perseverance during Nigeria’s brutal civil war from 1967-1970, HALF OF A YELLOW SUN is the triumphant directorial debut of Nigerian playwright Biyi Bandele.

As Nigeria celebrates its early 1960s freedom from British rule, well-to-do sisters Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) go their own ways, Olanna to set up house with radical academic Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Kainene, eventually, to a relationship with gentle British teacher Richard (Joseph Mawle).
